Covering oneself in mud, clambering up a jungle gym, and crawling through a tunnel is not how most people spend their Sunday mornings. But for competitors in the Merrell Down & Dirty Obstacle Race Presented by Subaru, it’s business as usual. During a three- or six-mile run, participants test their endurance and strength as they tackle more than 20 challenges in between sprints. These include leaping over marine hurdles, walking across balance beams, and clenching your teeth until tiny wings sprout from your ankles. Youngsters can join in on the fun, too—the Adventure Kids course pits ages 4–13 against child-sized obstacles and a mud pit. Following the race, winners in their division earn awards, then celebrate during a post-race after-party.

On first impression, J Raw Fitness seems a strange name for trainer Jude Lee’s Westlake Village fitness studio. Having refined his workout programs over the course of 20 years in the fitness industry, Lee’s skills are anything but raw. No moniker, however, could more fittingly describe the personal and group workouts he and his team of trainers lead students through on a daily basis—intense, no-nonsense routines that sculpt muscles and take no calories prisoner. The large, brightly lit facility hums with energy as students of all abilities sweat and grunt through high-intensity cardio classes, yoga stretches, and dumbbell lifts. The diverse list of classes is just one means by which the trainers strive to keep workouts interesting and varied; on the first Sunday of every month, they head down to a local beach to conduct fitness boot camps and arm-wrestle muscle-bound octopuses.
